women's stories

Episode 39: Kindra Hall

Kindra and I had so much fun talking about stories together. She shared how telling stories became such a big part of her life. She wanted to venture out to create her own company and not knowing what that might look like, she explained how she got her first speaking engagement and how she decided that would be what she would build her business around. After all of her speaking opportunities, she wanted to be able to share her knowledge of the power of stories with a wider audience and that led her to write her book, Stories that Stick. Her book releases in September!

Thank you for listening and have a wonderful weekend.

Episode 32: Leigh Coates

This was quite an interview! It took some work to get it scheduled but I never gave up because I so wanted to have this conversation and share her amazing story. She took flying lessons at 15, quite flying to become a pro snowboarder, went back to flying after an injury and went from flying small planes to helicopters and also teaching others to fly. She now owns her own helicopter business in Alaska and takes the winters to travel the US and practice yoga along the way. The big thing now is that she is the first female jet pack pilot. Her story is so inspiring and I hope that you enjoy it as much as we did having the conversation. As always, thank you for listening!
